Food Network renews Marc Summers and Joey Fatone’s ‘Rewrapped’

Rewrapped, Food Network’s Marc Summers–judged competition series where three contestants work to recreate and innovate on iconic snack foods, was renewed today for season 2!

When we spoke to Joey Fatone earlier this year, he said he would “definitely come back” for a second season of the Food Network show. He’ll be returning along with Summers when Rewrapped premieres again on September 8 at 8 p.m. The culinary competition wrapped (see what we did there?) its first season on July 7, finishing a 13-episode run with a Wise Cheez Waffie-filled finale.

'Rewrapped' season finale recap: Wise Cheez Waffies

Season 1 | Episode 13 | “A Word to the Wise Cheez Waffies” | Aired July 7, 2014

I’d never heard of the Wise Cheez Waffie before Rewrapped began. Neither had Joey Fatone. Luckily that doesn’t stop him from making plenty of puns as two food bloggers and one Virginia seafood chef compete to recreate the waffle-wafer combo on the latest episode of Rewrapped!Read More

'Rewrapped' recap: Are those doughnuts in your turkey burger?

Season 1 | Episode 12 | “Rich Frosted Fun” | Aired June 30, 2014

Entenmann’s Rich Frosted Donut has been the company’s top seller ever since it was introduced in 1972. Fast-forward more than 40 years, and the Food Network has brought in three chefs to recreate and innovate the iconic snack food on Rewrapped!

The latest episode kicks off with bakers Julian, Vickie and Rob each creating a different type of doughnut and trying to get their chocolate frosting just right. Julian goes for a classic white cake recipe and fries his donuts. Rob does the same, but with a lot more meticulous measuring. Vickie, meanwhile, bakes her donuts, also opting for a chocolate ganache instead of a frosting.Read More

'Rewrapped' recap: That Bloomin' Onion is a home run-ion

Season 1 | Episode 11 | “The Awesome Blossom” | Aired June 23, 2014

At Outback Steakhouse, specially trained chefs called “bloomologists” create 10 million Bloomin’ Onions per year. Outback Steakhouse Bloomin' Onion (http://www.outback.com/menu)On Food Network’s latest episode of Rewrapped, three contestants try their hand at the iconic onion appetizer, and the results are a little less than petal-perfect.

Contestants Paul (a Boston burger rock star), Jackie (a Philly food truck owner) and Eric (a New Jersey chef) jump into action as the episode begins, turning on their fryers and slicing up massive Vidalia onions.Read More

'Rewrapped' recap: How'd you make such a Tastykake?

Season 1 | Episode 9 | “Now Krimpet! Krimpet Good!” | Aired June 9, 2014

There are a few foods that just don’t go together. Pickles and chocolate, ice cream and pasta, and fish and butterscotch, to name a few. When it comes to Food Network’s cooking competition shows, however, no combination is off-limits. On the June 9 episode of Food Network’s Rewrapped, two out of three contestants go savory with their innovative creations, and both are surprisingly successful! But before any of that can happen, the contestants have 30 minutes to recreate the Tastykake Butterscotch Krimpet.Read More


'Rewrapped' recap: This is no rookie cookie

Season 1 | Episode 8 | “Milano, Milano! I Love You!” | Aired June 2, 2014

In the mint Milano cookie episode of Food Network’s Rewrapped, contestants have only 30 minutes to bake cookies, make a chocolate ganache, whip up a mint filling and put it all together on a plate. There’s a lot going on, but all three contestants — bakers Francesco, Tanya and Johnny — are up for the challenge.

The Milano cookie was born of necessity — when chocolate-dipped cookies started melting on their way to the Southern states, Pepperidge Farm solved the problem by sandwiching two cookies together — and it’s since become a classic. The Rewrapped chefs work to get the perfect Milano texture, aiming for something that is soft and chewy, but still crispy, especially on the golden-brown edges. Paula Deen would be proud of these contestants, all of whom use butter, butter and more butter in their cookie recipes.Read More

'Rewrapped' recap: Just the two of Utz

Season 1 | Episode 7 | “That Makes Two of Utz” | Aired May 26, 2014

Every week at the Utz factories in Pennsylvania, 900,000 pounds of pretzels are produced. On the “That Makes Two of Utz” episode of Food Network’s Rewrapped, contestants only need to make a few of the crunchy Utz pretzel rods to get through the round 1 “recreate” challenge.

The contestants, Janice, Jeremy and Rachel, struggle with taste, crunch, salt quality and even color this week as they work to make the perfect pretzel rod. Rachel, a New Jersey baker, seems to be having the most success with wet dough and piped pretzels. Judge Marc Summers even dubs her “Bill Nye” when she starts spraying her pretzel dough with sodium hydroxide, a chemical that Utz executive Molly Mancini says Utz also uses to get an iconic dark brown pretzel color.

Joey Fatone talks 'Rewrapped' set secrets and 'N Sync songs as snack foods

Joey Fatone has been on Dancing With the Stars, Rachael vs. Guy and Chopped. He’s hosted The Singing Bee and The Price Is Right in Las Vegas. He’s even appeared on Hannah Montana. (Oh, and he was in a little band called ‘N Sync.) Now the singer-turned-TV star is hosting a new show on Food Network, Rewrapped.

The Marc Summers-judged spin-off of Unwrapped debuted on April 21 with two half-hour episodes. Each episode has three contestants working to recreate and innovate on a classic snack food.

“It’s lighthearted — which is what’s fun about the whole thing,” says Fatone, speaking to The EW Community from his California home. “They’re taking it seriously, but you’re creating a Twinkie.”Read More

'Rewrapped' recap: That's the way the cookie crumbles

Season 1 | Episode 6 | “Let’s Get Ready to Crumble!” | Aired May 19, 2014

It’s Goldilocks day on the newest episode of Rewrapped, as three contestants try to recreate Entenmann’s famous chocolate chip cookies. Jesse’s cookies are too big, Shauna’s are too small, and Chris’s are just right. All three contestants, including husbands Jesse and Chris of New Jersey’s Sugarush bakery, take completely different approaches to the classically soft cookie, using piping, rolling and steaming during the 30 minute “recreate” round. Shauna, an author and food blogger, bakes hers with shortening and butter, while Chris uses cream cheese and Jesse gets controversial with vanilla instant pudding mix.

Jenny McCoy is back to judge this round, joining head judge Marc Summers and Maureen Sticco, Entenmann’s director of marketing. It’s great to have Jenny back, giving host Joey Fatone a run for his money with baking puns and “What the fluff?!” exclamations.Read More

'Rewrapped' recap: The (Herr's potato) chips are down

Season 1 | Episode 5 | “A Chip Off the Old Block” | Aired May 12, 2014

The Herr’s potato chips episode of Rewrapped is a triple threat, with contestants recreating three different varieties of the classic crispy snack. Sadly, the dill pickle and ketchup flavors are nowhere to be found, and instead, the three chefs set to work cooking up BBQ, salt-and-vinegar, and rippled cheddar-and-sour-cream chips. Each chef chooses a different type of potato, with Patrick going for Yukon gold, Jay opting for Idaho and Dom trying a russet variety. They quickly get slicing, and with three different dishes to recreate, round 1 is finished before host Joey Fatone even has time to make a pun.

Joining head judge Marc Summers this week are potato patriarch Ed Herr and the Sandwich King himself, Food Network star Jeff Mauro. Herr is a flesh-and-blood encyclopedia of potato-chip knowledge, pointing out right away that only the Idaho chips will look the way they’re supposed to. Russet and Yukon potatoes have too much sugar, and will turn brown as soon as they’re fried. It looks like two out of three chefs are already at a disadvantage.
